Hennessey School Board meets, discuss dome and 2019/2020 school year

Hennessey Public School Board members met Wednesday, June 26, to discuss various points of interest for the 2019/2020 school year.

HPS had been entertaining bids from food service providers for the coming school year. The two companies board members considered were Keystone Foodservice and Opaa! Food Management, Inc. A committee looked at the options on behalf of HPS and chose Opaa, after traveling to nearby Kingfisher, which utilizes Opaa, and Waukomis, which uses Keystone.

“We had a fairly good apples to apples comparison, because the day we went they had tacos… Mexican type food that day,” explained board and committee member Christopher Choate. “I thought the quality and presentation was better [with Opaa], but really the thing that I liked the most was that I feel like Opaa… They’ve got a lot more experience. They’re more pro-active saying, ‘This is what you need to be doing. This is what our experience is. This is what we’ve tried. This is what works, and this what you need to do.’ Whereas Keystone was more like, ‘What do you want?’ Well, we don’t know what we want. We want it better, but we don’t know how to get there because we’re not food experts, and they are. So, I guess the determining factor for me was their expertise in food service.”
